THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: We have this just in. Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon to death 20 years ago, was denied parole today. This was his first attempt to gain release from prison.
Chapman was interviewed this morning at the maximum security Attica State Prison by three parole board members and we'll quote them now: Your most vicious and violent act was apparently fueled by your need to be acknowledged, the parole board said. During your parole hearing, this panel noted your continue interest in maintaining your notoriety.
Parole, again, is denied to Mark Chapman.
